B-70-83 Box Cars

A roster of the B-70-83 class box cars is provided as follows:


	SP 247215-247914	(re #'d to SP 252000-252700 by UP)

These 52'-8" box cars were built by AC&F in 1980 and featured 8'+8' Youngstown sliding doors, non-terminating ends, Freight Saver cushioning and 5525 ft3 capacity. Some of this class was renumbered and repainted into the UP's simplified shield scheme. They retained their SP reporting marks, but were given new numbers in the SP 252000 series.
